Our masa fried chicken (MFC for short!) is a fantastic Mexican-American mashup. In place of traditional buttermilk the chicken is marinated in sour cream, and the subtly spiced, crispy coating consists of Mexican masa harina (or polenta) and cornflour which provides extra crunch.

Bobby was super excited to cook from the Taco Legend book - he even insisted on making a salsa as "Mummy needs chillies in her meal." Absolutely delicious. Next challenge, making his own tortillas. Very impressed with his chopping skills. Another taste sensation. Bobby says "Thanks The Spicery!"

Great job, Bobby - we're very impressed! We look forward to seeing the homemade tortillas next!
